Summer Recess arrives

There will be no more posts on this site for a couple weeks baring some brilliant and huge story that we may come across. We've decided to shut up the office and take in the fresh air. The Council has pretty much shut itself down politically now until October so we don't see what, or why we should provide commentary when there is nothing happening. We're hoping that the holidays will calm down the other members of the team who have, shall we say, "gone off on one" recently.

Well, you'll be missed.

And, it would appear that Greenwich Council is expecting nobody to be around either.

This might explain why the planning application for the move of the John Roan School (i.e. the one around it's move to the Peninsula, in the face of opposition, logic, and common sense) is due to be discussed at the August planning meeting.

The original plan appeared on the Council site at the end of May (with a submitted date at the start of May). It then disappeared for many months. But behold! It's back again... appearing near the end of July - albeit with a new registered date of 21May07.

So - the "paper" trail will make it look like there was due time given for consultation and democratic participation. The reality is something rather less than that.

In any event, it's sneaky. Or cowardly. Or both.

Indeed, because we never attack the Tories and only ever put out their lines - do they even have lines?! What we think you actually mean is that because we attack the Council, and the Council is Labour, you think we must therefore be Tories.

However, want you seem to be ignoring is we make a concerted editorial point of not citing the parties directly unless the story is actually a party political one (like the O2 tickets for example where we slagged them both off). We rarely refer to the "Labour controlled Council" and instead make a point of saying "the controlling group".

Anyway, we're better opposition than the opposition parties are. OUr anonymous readers who appear every now and again and scream Tory are just party political hacks who would probably vote for a piece of wood if it had the right colour rossette on it. We on the ther hand probably won't bother voting, nor will we endorse any party when the next election comes.
